Import your files into DXlabs  ( dxlabsuite.com)  in an adif  format and 
use that program to print out the necessary labels etc. an  interesting 
program for DXers that does a lot for contesters too.

I feel  like I'm back in the 20th century when I receive a shipment of QSLs 
from  the bureau. I want to print 40 or 50 labels but the QSOs are strewn 
across  many different WriteLog contest files. Plus it's tedious to go into 
the  individual files to tag the QSOs and then print out the 5 or 6 labels 
from  that file before moving on to the next file.

I've resorted to using  LOTW screens to search for the QSO. Then I copy and 
paste the data into a  Word document so that I can massage it to fit on a 
label. I'm feeling  embarrassed as I try to describe the process.

How have the smart hams  solved this problem? Are there programs available 
extract the  information from LOTW, or WriteLog, or MixW? And how do the 
foreign hams  manage to get multiple QSOs on one label?
